Updated by @LarkAnderson and stickied: To summarize, we have a zero tolerance policy towards mobile ads that automatically redirect you to another page or to the App Store. If you encounter any such ad, please post here, @ mention me (@LarkAnderson), and add as many of the following details as you can to help us track them down and remove them ASAP:
- A screenshot of the ad
- The URL of the page the ad appeared on
- The date and time you saw the ad
- The product advertised
- The page or app that you were redirected to
This site's mobile ads are very intrusive and keep redirecting my browser to pages where I don't have time to close the page without it taking over my browser and re-directing me to the Android store to download something (it never initiates a download, just takes me to store pages), or try to prevent me from closing the page. Just the fact it will re-direct me off the page I was viewing is bad enough. My PC and laptop browsing is fine, but mobile browsing no, and it's just this site it's an issue, not sure why.
Anyhow, since it would be too much of a problem to create a new thread for every advertisement that gives me trouble, we should create a sticky thread here in Bug Reporting & Feedback to name the ads that keep doing this so you can identify the ads that do this and take action against them, or put pressure on the ad services that allow for virus filled spam ads and browser re-directs that to go through their system. Also, that way we can report it on just one thread and not create a new topic every time the issue arises.
